Ethereum Daily Technical Chart
The daily ETH/USD chart shows the price trending upwards between the 200 SMA support and the 100 SMA resistance. The gap between the simple moving averages is narrowing to show that the trending is in favor of the bulls. Moreover, if the 100 SMA can double-cross above the 200 SMA, we could see more upside movement above the $160 target and the February high at $165.64.
Meanwhile, the RSI in the same weekly range at 63.68 is pointing upwards towards the overbought region (from 70). The last time the indicator brush shoulders with the region were on February 23 according to the weekly chart. If it continues to trend higher, expect Ethereum to sustain a bullish upside motion while protecting key support levels.
